I lied

Not on hiatus.

Sleep was ok, but it's so hard getting up! gad!

2 eggs / spinach

at work:
apple with cashew butter. why have any other butter when you can have cashew butter?? you know when you eat a mix of nuts you pick out the cashews anyway.

grounds sausage in tomato sauce + spinach.

I am feeling super bloated and fadgy lately. Is it from my thursday night binger?? still? holy.
Well, I haven't been all that 'good' lately with food. I've had bread/pasta recently. My stomach was not happy about all that. Also, beer is always in our fridge and I keep drinking them. My bowels feel unhappy too.. ugh.

I should really go for a run tonight. It's been decided. Fuck you lazy self!

This may be my last post for a while. Things to do, places to see.

We are having another paleo challenge at the gym in September. I am going hardcore and winning. Motivation: gym membership. I can mildly starve myself for a month + workout lots. Watch me.

Sleep was awful. I blame the coffee I had after dinner. What was I thinking? We went to Ceili Cottage for dinner, we shared the terrine special. It was duck terrine. Good shit. I had the cod cakes + salad, Jamie had the meat pie (bison + sweet potato). That place is great but the selection is limited. But you're guaranteed a great dinner regardless. Also they have a nice patio which is pretty desirable. I wish I lived walking distance to a pub like that. The dessert special.. wait for it... nutella and bacon cheesecake. yeah that's right. We ordered it. It didn't taste like bacon, but had chewy bacon bits in it (ungh). It was a salty chocolate cake. Good though. We watched Braveheart later to get in the Scottish mood. Also shared a bowl of popcorn with beer.

skipped on the run due to shit sleep.

coffee, scrambled eggs, rice cake w/home made nut butter and maybe some chocolate chips on top.

hey, I need to fatten up a bit for the challenge so my change is more drastic ;P this shouldn't be a problem.

Sleep was not great. Not sure why. I kept waking up coughing though.. like a tickle in my throat that's been lingering for weeks now. Annoying. I think I need to clean the ceiling fan, I think there is too much dust on it.

2 eggs, 1/2 avocado

apple, coffee and 2 hershey kisses (to clean my palette between apple/coffee)

Half can of tuna, 2 tomatoes, 1/2 avocado + lemon juice

three small plums

One more week, that's all I have to say.

Sleep was good, surprisingly.

I've been obsessing so much about my hair that I haven't even been able to enjoy the anticipation of our upcoming adventure. Mind switch! Excitement mode commences NOW. Fuck the PO-leese. And I'm having a good hair day. I'm learning, I'm learning and I'm CHOOSING my short hair. I'll explain this mindset in person, my friends.

I loved that blueberry + nut + coconut milk bowl so much that I had it for breakfast. I don't mean canned coconut milk, btw. I mean the one that comes in the tetra box, like almond milk. It's good. It's not heavy, its a bit more watered down. It tastes a bit shocking with the first bite, but with the cinnamon, crunchy nuts and cool blueberry bursts, it's quite delightful! (bahahha) I also sprinkled coconut shreds on it. I recommend it. Paleo cereal. No grains. Word up.

BUT, since I didn't have any protein, I'm friggin hungry already. And I can't stop thinking about getting an Americano and a snack from Sense Appeal.

scotch egg
small bowl of ketchup chips. what?

maybe another small bowl of k-chips later on.

Backsquats, front squats then..
3 rounds of..
30 wall ball
300m run.

I died.

smoothie and 2 Amish pepperettes.

I refrained from having a beer.

eim behind

sleep was ok

went for a lovely 6km jog yesterday with my 2 friends. One of them is new to running so we didn't go as hard as we could have. That's ok. Next week I'll give'er.

2 egg + sausage omelette


salmon, sweet potato + curried cauliflower + home made basil aioli inspired by BQM

Getting used to my haircut, gettin positive reviews by my buds and looking forward to all the styles I'll have in between now and next year.

May or may not crossfit tonight. I need to grab some things for our trip. A new TNA hoodie for one. Not because its TNA per sey, but because the length/sizing is perfect and my current black one's cuffs are mangled. Think I'll get a grey one this time. what what.

Maybe I'll even get myself some new lippy!

Should I bleach the top part of my hair?

Didn't go to crossfit.

"leftover salad" = sausage / veggies / spinach / blue cheese

later, some chocolate chips and rooibos tea.

Went to bed too late last night. But I did go to crossfit and set some new records for myself.

80lb push press 1RM

I did think I was going to die doing that backsquat.

2 rice cakes, home made almond/walnut butter/raspberries

feeling a little fat these days. That is all. Need to step it up or buckle down on food or else I'll come back from holiday looking and feeling like a marshmallow.

salad w/tuna, tomato, avocado, balsamic dressing

grazed on grapes throughout the day

Snack 4pm
small bowl of crunchy cheetos. It's foolish NOT to eat cheetos. fackaff.

Ran 5.3km, it was a great night for running, nice and cool.

beef brisket on a bed of greens, w/cheddar cheese and sautéed red peppers/mushrooms.
1 beer - Corona. Oi you! it's a Molson product.

Sleep was AWFUL. I won't get into it.

2 rice cakes + pb/jam


1 boneless/skinless chicken thigh + sweet potatoes

1 apple + almond butter

Pre workout:
piece of Amish summer sausage, 1 lavash cracker + olives
I was starving

Crossfit. It was a nice small group, 6 of us. Good group. Good Metcon - airdyne sprints FML. They kill me. Backsquatted 120lb. x 2. Then 1 1/4's @ 85lb.

1 butcher's honey garlic sausage + green salad w/balsamic


Sleep was better, but not best.

protein smoothie - banana + berries + coconut milk + protein powder


Lunch is tbd. a salad of some sort. I would love to go to CF tonight, we have plans on checking out the AWOL art show. We wanna see if our stuff has been sold. I guess its the best night to go since it's gonna rain Thurs/Fri/Sat.

I haven't been eating the best lately, I've also not been feeling great. I hurt my neck at the gym. sometimes when I feel sickish, I eat more. this is one of those times.


small bowl of cheetos.

going to get some fruit for lunch.
